I did not find anything special here. It may be ok to have a look and walk for 1-2 hours but that is all. It is not a big area. There are a few rides which may be interesting for children. If you do not have extra time not recommended.

We visited the Kemah Boardwalk after a day of exploring the space center. The kids enjoyed walking by the ocean and all the sea gulls. There was a nice variety of attractions and restaurants. On this visit we tried Landry's. Parking was a bit of a challenge, the surface lots were full but we did find a spot on the... More

Great place to walk off the calories from the surrounding food stores...found out how adults are still kids at heart... More

Our young elementary aged group and their parents went here for Spring Break. The parking is a bit expensive but they do offer free parking...you just have to walk a bit to the boardwalk. There are all kinds of things to do here...Rides, games, dining, and sights. It was an enjoyable experience.

The Kemah Boardwalk can be a good day of fun, but you have to go into it knowing it's a total tourist trap - except it for what it is and just go with it. You have to pay for parking no matter what, so park in the garage. You will be glad to have your car in the shade... More

Went to visit my family and we took a trip to Kemah the Saturday before Easter. We had a good experience. Prices a little high for food and drinks on the boardwalk, but other than that, it was very nice.

Such a quit and pretty place to take a night stroll. Safe and pretty very relaxing! You can also rent a golf cart and just shop or do some restaurant hopping.I love the different seasons and holidays. lots of things to do in this area that are family orientated.

Lots of activities and rides to partake in. Great place for kids and teens to enjoy. The Bullet roller coaster was so much fun. My friends and I really enjoyed that one. The funnel cake was good and the daiquiri was good.

Came for my daughter's 11th birthday for 1 night and long day. Rides were amazing, facilities were so clean and something for everyone! The staff does an amazing job at keeping the facility clean and everyone was overly friendly. We encountered a problem with a rude guest waiting on the Aviator ride whose children were cutting in line and were... More

We used our Houston City Pass to get in and saved a lot of money that way. Two or three rides are not included with the City Pass, but most of them were. We got there early, and it wasn't crowded at all. Lines for the rides were not long. The longest line was the line to get in. If... More
